Support for unpaid carers
20th May 2020<h3>Are you currently caring for a family member, partner or friend who needs help?</h3> Many unpaid carers may not see themselves as needing services and many may feel that they are simply carrying out ordinary responsibilities as part of a family, yet the key role they play will see increased pressures due to the impact of COVID 19, particularly if they become ill or need to self-isolate Whatever your situation, if you’re providing support to someone that isn’t part of paid or voluntary work, Cheshire East Council can provide support to ensure that people of all ages recognise themselves as carers and get the help available to them. <h3>Support Provided</h3> Support will include:
- information, and advice to help carers and support them in caring role
- Signposting to relevant teams and support services where further ongoing support is required
- The service also offers ‘take a break’ for any Carer that needs to take some time out from their caring duties. We offer a maximum break up to 3 hrs and the break will be well planned and organised with yourselves.
